ACME: The hardest table to come by this fashion week will be at Acme (9 Great Jones), the newly opened bi-level dinner lounge which features Danish comfort food. Designers Joseph Altuzarra, Prabal Gurung and Zac Posen have all already stopped by.
LE BARON: Two years in the making, club Le Baron (32 Mulberry Street), run by Andre Saraiva, has finally opened just in time for fashion week. Almost impossible to get into, expect the door policy to be fortress-tight during Fashion Week. The venue will also play host to the Colette Sex Party with the Ace Hotel and Araks on Valentine's Day.
STARBUCKS: Two Starbucks locations turn into second offices for the fashion crowd during Fashion Week. One is across the street from the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Lincoln Center tents (1889 Broadway) and the other is a block away from Milk Studios (76 9th Avenue). Just don't count on finding a seat.
TOP OF THE STANDARD: The lounge on the top floor of The Standard Hotel (848 Washington Street) in the Meatpacking District will still be kicking this fashion week. Purple magazine is hosting its fashion week party here.
CHELSEA MARKET: The best place to find food near Milk Studios (it's right across the street), Chelsea Market (75 9th Avenue) becomes a bonafide fashionista hangout during fashion week.
THE STANDARD EAST VILLAGE: The Cooper Square Hotel has been transformed into The Standard East Village (25 Cooper Square), and is poised to be a late night hang-out this fashion week. Designer Chris Benz is hosting his after-party here.
BILLY'S BAKERY: There are slim pickings for snacks on the stretch of West Chelsea where many designers show in raw warehouse spaces and art galleries. The exception is Billy's Bakery (184 9th Avenue), where fashion week scenesters pop into for a cupcake pick-me-up and a coffee.
DOS CAMINOS: Back in the days when it was de rigueur for Marc Jacobs' runway shows to start two hours late, fashion editors used to bide their time over frozen prickly pear margaritas at Dos Caminos Park (373 Park Avenue South). The restaurant has remained a post Marc Jacobs haunt.
INDOCHINE: The perennially hot Vietnamese restaurant Indochine (430 Lafayette Street) is where Diane von Furstenberg is hosting her after-party dinner and Vladimir Restoin-Roitfeld (Carine Roitfeld's son) is hosting a fete this Fashion Week.
SUPER LINDA: Matt Abramcyk's newly-opened Super Linda (109 West Broadway) is all about Latin American fusion food. Abramcyk is in with the fashion crowd, so expect this to be a late night fashion week boîte.
